A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not simply can an update enhance the functionality of your websites, but it will also save you a lot of troubles in the future. An update could be released for a lot of reasons, the most frequent being to fix newly identified security holes, which may enable third-party individuals to access and modify the content which you have on the server. You might also see an improved efficiency of your web applications because updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Moreover, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could need a later OS version that will have the required software dependencies and will allow them to operate adequately.
